Environmental Working Group (EWG) Report
On April 29, 2019 the Environmental Working Group (EWG) released a report that claims contaminants in California tap water pose more than a one-in-a-million cancer risk to thousands of Californians based on the cumulative risk of those contaminants. The EWG report acknowledges various uncertainties in its methodology that could overstate or understate risks. As such, its findings are admittedly speculative and not based on any scientific studies.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the State Water Resources Control Board Division of Drinking Water are responsible for establishing science-based standards that limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided in public water systems. California has some of the strictest water quality standards in the nation. Water that meets state and federal standards is safe.
Walnut Valley Water District is committed to meeting the water supply needs of the communities we serve. Delivering safe water to our customers is the highest priority. Information regarding your water quality can be found on the District’s Annual Water Quality Report. The District is proud to declare that it meets all state and federal drinking water standards.
